Antonio Caballero’s journey as a photographer started when he received a Brownie Fiesta camera from his stepfather. He started his career as a photojournalist working for major Mexican media houses. However, his career took a pivotal turn in 1955 when he worked for Cine Mundial, a publication specializing in celebrity culture. During this time, Caballero started gaining recognition as a contemporary artist. This July, the upcoming Morton Subastas photography auction will highlight a piece from Caballero’s Cine Mundial days. The available lot is a collage of 12 pictures of Mexican actress Jaqueline Voltaire.
The auction also presents works from Nelson Garrido, Pedro Meyer, and Enrique Metinides. One of the works by Garrido is particularly featured. From the All Saints Are Dead series, the collection depicts Saint Jasmine. Garrido’s use of vibrant colors in the inkjet print gives the subjects a life-like impression.
